president obama against the bill. this marks a major shift of momentum for the g.o.p. states all across america are now forced to deal with crippling debt and spending. and the man rumored to be running for chairman of the republican national committee, jc watts. how are you? >> what do you say, mr. hannity. i'm doing well. >> i see you have a bowl game coming up in memphis this year, congratulations. >> actually the tulsa hurricanes. the sooners are going to be in dallas versus johnny football january 24ing. >> sorry, i messed it up. >> that's okay. i forgive you. >> all right. let's -- notre dame is going to be beat alabama. we have a battle in the hannity household. >> your wife is probably going to win that argument. >> we are wasting time. are you running for chair of the rnc? >> i heard an rnc member say last weekend, said, unfortunately we had one black guy in the charm ship, been there, done that, we don't need to go there. this is never -- i've never said you needed a black person. i never said you needed a white, re, yellow or brown or even a female. i said you need someone si
president obama against the bill. this marks a major shift of momentum for the >> states all over america are forced to deal with crippling debt and reckless spending. here to comment on that by the man who is rumored to be running for the chairman of the republican national committee. former congressman j.c. watts. >> i'm doing will. >> your sooners got a bowl game in memphis this year. congratulations. >> well, it's actually the tulsa hurricane. the sooners are going to be in dallas, versus johnny football -- >> sorry, i messed it up. >> that's okay. i forgive you. >> notre dame is going to beat alabama -- we have that in the "hannity" household. >> your wife's probably going to win that argument. we are wasting time. are you running for chair of the rnc. >> i heard an rnc member say, you know, last weekend, said, you know, unfortunately, he said, we have had one black guy in the chairmanship. we have been there, done that. we don't need to go there. this is never -- i have never said that you needed a black person there. i never said you needed a white, red, yellow or brown -- or even
republicans called their bill to repeal obama care? i do. it was an act to repeal the job killing health care law. now, the whole job killing thing has always been a bit of a talking point myth. a nonpartisan study of the very similar health insurance mandate enacted six years in massachusetts showed, quote, no evidence of reduced employment as a result of health reform there. still, that argument, the whole job killing obama care thing, sent the owner of red lobster and a bunch of other very carb friendly restaurant chains on a hapless misadventure in corporate protest that culminated today in a public and embarrassing and informative way. back in october, company called darden restaurants announced they were putting more workers on part-time status in stead of full-time to see if they would be able to limit the cost of complying with the new health reform law. under the new law, big companies like darden have to either offer health insurance or pay a $2,000 fine for each full-time employee. over 30 employees who ends up using public subsidies to buy health care. you catch those words there,
we'll talk with bill daley, former chief of staff for president obama. >>> an historic day for girls day worldwide. in honor of malala, the pakistani teen shot by the taliban. this is andrea mitchell on msnbc. sniffs ] i have a cold. [ sniffs ] i took dayquil but my nose is still runny. [ male announcer ] truth is, dayquil doesn't treat that. really? [ male announcer ] alka-seltzer plus fights your worst cold symptoms, plus it relieves your runny nose. [ breathes deeply ] awesome. [ male announcer ] yes, it is. that's the cold truth! social security are just numbers thinkin a budget.d... well, we worked hard for those benefits. we earned them. and if washington tries to cram decisions about the future... of these programs into a last minute budget deal... we'll all pay the price. aarp is fighting to protect seniors with responsible... solutions that strengthen medicare and... social security for generations to come. we can do better than a last minute deal... that would hurt all of us. this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat
obama would not have won michigan without labor and wouldn't have won ohio without labor >> bill: the president said this is all political. this is political payback. isn't it? >> absolutely. this is a packyback. they are so angry. they can't believe they lost michigan you heard those stories about dick morris and karl rove thinking they were going to win. even mitt romney didn't even have a concession speech written up. they were so convinced they were going to win. by the way, i saw on the news last night sheldon adelson, the guy with the casinos in las vegas he is starting all over again. he said i will spend $100 million against labor because they realize and these guys all talk together the karl roves, the norquists. >> the koch brothers. >> these people all talk to each other and figure out, how are we going to take over? and what the hell went wrong? they were so convinced that they had the money, that they could win this race now they think we have to go after labor because they are the problem. >> that's why we lost ohio that's why we lost mich
is right. this was the exact thing they voters for obama decided to shoot down this union bill. >> it's surprising. >> it caught us all by surprise. it isn't going to be like wisconsin. i think this bill is going to pass. and the situation in wisconsin was different. you had to get a quorum, and they tried to prevent a vote on the bill and took a month of protests. i don't think that will happen. just need a simple majority in michigan and they will pass the bill and they won't have a chance to repeal it until 2014. they will have to win back the senate, the house and the governor. >> it is likely to stop in michigan. you look at states with right to work legislation, the whole deep south and a couple states in the west but the upper midwest and northeast has tried to stay away from that because of the strong tradition of union organizing in the state. you have indiana going the other direction and michigan looking like they might, and wisconsin could be next up although the governor hasn't said how he's going to proceed on that and i think it's going to embolden the an eye union forc
to stop him. it's a proposal that president obama likes. so why would mitch mcconnell propose such a bill? to embarrass the democrats. mcconnell wanted to prove that the democrats didn't have the votes for the legislation. senate majority leader harry reid called his bluff initially, putting the bill up to vote, but after discuss it with democratic member, reid got the support he needed and had a change of heart. claire mccaskill was presiding over the senate when mcconnell objected to voting on the bill. >> is there an objection to the original request? >> i'll object. >> objection is heard. i got whiplash. >> very strange. >> dick durbin reacted to mcconnell's unbelievable move moments later. >> so this may be a moment in senate history when a senator made a proposal and when given an opportunity for a vote, on that proposal, filibustered his own proposal. i think we have now reached a new spot in the history of the senate we have never seen before. >> let's turn to vermont senator bernie sanders, independent. i'm laughing at it too, senator. this just goes to show they are winging it b
because let me read this. it's shameful that republicans are playing in to mr. obama's hands. negotiating in public amongst themselves. prematurely giving up on the tax issue and undermining house speaker boehner in the process to which bill kristol responded, it would be great if they had an idea of what republicans can do. they don't. if they follow the editors over the cliff the only affect i'm afraid would be to turn a retreat in december in to a panicked rout in january. that's an interesting back and forth combined with what you said, as well. >> no, it is. i think you see in that back and forth a conservative outlet, at least the editorial page. some of the fissures within this party. just the direction of the party, there is, again, this big vacuum. there isn't a real leader of the republican party right now and seeing the different camps sort of fighting for primacy and fighting for a voice in terms of what the direction of this party will be not only on this issue but just in terms of larger issues about the direction of the country. >> and michael, as we pointed out, the presid
to be hillary clinton supported by bill clinton and presumably a still relatively popular barack obama, trying to win that will be truly the super bowl, and the republican party today is incapable of competing at that level. >> let's talk about this with cnn contributors l.z. granderson and will cain. agree or disagree on gingrich's assessment? >> gingrich sounds like a detroit lions fan. he's so pessimistic heading into the super bowl. i tend to agree. i think a the lot of people i've spoken to inside the administration as well as just kind of political wonks like us, we all think that hillary is going to run and she's going to be an incredible candidate to try to defeat. with that being said, 2016 is a long ways away. we need to get through 2014. we need to get through the fiscal cliff first. i think we're getting ahead of ourselves by saying she's unbeatable, but she's certainly formidable if she decides to run. >> point out that hillary clinton at every step says she's not running. we'll go ahead and talk about it anyway. will, do you agree with newt gingrich she would be unbeatable, at le
of attention and emotion in michigan. we'll continue to watch it. as we know the governor can sign this bill making michigan the 24th right-to-work state in the country any moment. we'll keep you posted. rick: the obama administration is now cracking down on states refusing to comply with health care reform. the white house announcing any state that refuses to fully expand medicaid to required levels will not receive full funding under obamacare. this as we learn another state, tennessee, has joined more than a dozen others in opting not to create a state-backed insurance exchange. brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. brad, is this because the rollout with obamacare is not exactly going as planned? >> you bet. when only 13 states opt in to medicaid expansion. nine states say they won't. there are a bunch of states sitting on the sidelines freting how they will be able to absorb this kind of cost. it is economic duress on part of the administration. they feel only way they can expand their coverage is threatening the states with funds. fact the matter, rick, 70
if these clashes continue. obama care tax hikes aren't going to just effect your medical bills. they might effect your pets as well. a new rule from the irs shows some medical devices used by vets will be hit by obama care's 2.3% device tax. that likely means higher vet costs because manufacturers will be raising prices. the tax applies to any device that is used for both people and for the pets. i'm trying to read this and look at these little animals. they are so cute. pet owners already spend more than $12 billion a year on vet care. let me tell you i do know that it's expensive to have animals. but they are so worth it. one new mtv show hasn't aired yet and already angered a member of the senate. >> our motto around here is whatever happens, happens. [ laughter ] >> oh my goodness. you are looking at a trailer for mtv's new show you would buck wire set to air on january 3rd. follows a group of young adults from west virginia much like the jersey shore did in new jersey. now a west virginia senator is trying to get it canned. democrat joe manchin has commission of the ftv instead of showing th
. the bill signed and they can finish up and they can go home. >> michigan has the fifth highest percentage of unionized workers at 17%, its history is well-known. it's a blue state that obama won by points last month. they lost these fights just about everywhere else. democrats in right to work states have moved on. democrats in the state legislature have threatened further action. >> good ideas get debate and bad ones get rammed through with police protection in a legislature. i will say this. this fight is not over. >> it's unclear exactly what democrats and labor can do. critics say it could overturn the law that would require getting 258,000 signatures on the ballot. labor may be looking at 2014 for retribution. >> we are reawakening and going to build a powerful movement. make it crystal clear that schneider can't get away with this. >> this is the first round of a battle that will divide the state. we will have a civil war in this state. >> there you heard it. think about it this way. labor is likely to make schneider a big 2014 target. the mid-western republican governors are aiming
by this weekend. so this weekend is the fiscal cliff. >> gretchen: because it takes a while to write the bills. >> eric: and has to originate in the house and right now, john boehner and president obama are miles apart allegedly. it doesn't look like they're gotting any closer. so it's got to go to the house, then gets sent, assuming it passes, to the senate, gets marked up and has to be agreed upon in committees and conference and then eventually gets signed by the president. >> steve: it just takes time. >> eric: there is a holiday. >> gretchen: somebody who had to handle something similarly about a decade ago was rudy guiliani when he was mayor of new york city. he was faced with a circumstance of do i raise taxes? do i cut spending? do i do a combination of both? he was on hannity last night explaining what he ultimately decided to do. >> i was given a report, report said, you have to raise taxes across the board. said nothing about reducing spending. and i said to myself, i wasn't an economic expert then. i became one after being mayor of new york. and i said, this doesn't make sense. if
